Thought I'd read up some QC (I don't feel like working at the moment).
In this comic strip he says:
Before you send me angry, tear-stained e(mo)mails, let me just say that you are perfectly entitled to enjoy listening to any of the bands that Marten and Faye are wishing to assault in today's strip. I would never begrudge someone their taste in music. It's such a subjective thing that there really is no "right" or "wrong" when it comes to one's listening habits.
The flipside of that coin, though, is that I AM perfectly entitled to make fun of emo bands for being Goddamned crybabies who take themselves too seriously. ;)
+1 to that!
